We received our initial beta test results today - 28.6.  While this is not an absolute negative, it is not overwhelmingly positive either.  At a gestational age of 5 weeks and a fetal age of 3 weeks (I will discuss this in a later post - I didn't get it either and kept calculating the due date wrong), a normal HCG level is anything from 18 - 7,340.  Once an embryo has implanted the HCG level should double (or nearly double) every 48-72 hours.  They will be repeating the beta in two days to see if the HCG level is rising appropriately.

Right now we cannot be certain of anything - positive or negative.  We get to ride the beta roller-coaster for a while.....
